Today marks the beginning of Audible’s Afrolit Now. A series I am curating of short stories from six African writers. The more downloads we have of it, the more I am likely to be able to do a second season and bring in more short stories from different African writers so please download and convince at least two other people to do the same.
We kick off with Troy Onyango’s The Water People. Audible says of the series in the promo:
“Inspired by Afrolit Sans Frontières, the virtual literary festival founded by South African author and curator Zukiswa Wanner, the Afrolit Now series brings to life short stories from the best in contemporary African fiction. Showcasing a wide range of countries, genres, and subjects—be it joy, heartbreak, love, or laughter—these pieces prove that a truly great story has no frontiers.”
